Hi

Is there any way I can reset the condition code in JCL?

I am reading a dataset and if its empty JCL returns 4. I want to reset it to 0 in JCL and proceed to further steps..Pl advice

Thanks

Not really. You can reset MAXCC internally in step such as in case of IDCAMS.

What is this step... executing any program or ???

This can be done using COND parameter for further steps to include RC=4 alongwith RC=0 from previous step.
You may probably describe the dependency first between steps.

sood16,

Why reset the condition code? This should not impede execution of the remaining steps unless you want it to by the use of COND= on the remaining steps.

Let us know why you think the condition code should be reset.

This step is the last step and job gives return code 4 so its misleading..

this step is using IEBGENER and sending the report to some system

you say misleading. Why wouldn't you want to know that the dataset is empty?

As the requirement is - empty report should not be sent

Is there any way to reset the Condition Code..report is not sent but it returns CC 04

sood16,

Try this:

Code:

//JS00100  EXEC PGM=IDCAMS             
//DDIN     DD DSN=your.report.file,     
//          DISP=SHR                   
//SYSPRINT DD DUMMY                   
//SYSIN DD *                           
  PRINT IFILE(DDIN) COUNT(1)   
//JS00200  EXEC PGM=IEBGENER,COND=(4,EQ,JS00100)
:
:


Add this IDCAMS step just before the IEBGENER step.

The IDCAMS step will return CC=0004 if the file is empty, the COND=(4,EQ,JS00100) will skip the IEBGENER step if JS00100 CC=0004

This'll not help in this scenario as IDCAMS would again cause Job to generate RC=04, and that is MISLEADING as per original poster for them to understand the job went fine.

So coding IDCAMS is same as IEBGENER, as both are generating RC=04 in case file is empty.

I guess following should work

IF RC > 8 Set RC = 0

I understand that the IDCAMS step would also generate a RC=0004, but the IDCAMS step would prevent the empty report from being sent.

Personally, I would like the CC=0004 if the report was empty, a quick reference to tell if no report was sent.

I wonder if IDCAMS could be used to copy the reports to various outputs and then set MAXCC=0

Hello Dave,

Quote:

I interpreted this line from original poster as, the report is not being sent in case of empty but the problem is CC=04; which is misleading to them.

Thats what caused me to say that putting IDCAMS is the same. No contradiction on your suggestions... icon_biggrin.gif
